When Basia told me about her involvement in a cooperative I was really excited. The whole idea is very close to my own heart and something definitely worth educating people about. I do hope you will find the interview and the idea interesting. I am leaving the comments section open this time. Please feel free to share your thoughts with us or just let us know you've enjoyed the read. Thank you!
Episode 1 - The one where Basia tells us about a cooperative.
How long have you been involved in that?
I have been involved for over 2 years.
What made you interested in it?
I’m a mother of two and when I had my first child, I started to think about what I wanted to feed him with. Unfortunately, at that time there wasn’t a lot of organic food in supermarkets and there was only one organic shop in my city which was extremely expensive for me. I started to search for alternatives, after two years somebody began a food cooperative in my city (thank you Wiola!). I joined our cooperative in the first six months and the beginnings were exciting. It was a new chapter in my life, now I am so much more conscious of my consumer decisions and I do appreciate this knowledge every day. Sometimes we forget that we can vote for changes with our wallet and the way how we spend our money. I believe this is the power which we should use intentionally.

It goes without saying that when you are a teacher you are able to meet a lot of people. If you are lucky, your students can share great stories with you, tell you about amazing places and experiences, offer you useful tips on how to do something - starting from cooking a delicious risotto ending up with an innovative way of changing a tire in your car.
I think that in a way I have been blessed with an abundance of such stories and anecdotes, advice, strong opinions, recommendations, dos and don’ts -you name it. And … I thought that I would like to give you a glimpse of some of them. That’s why I am presenting - the one and only- Interviews with my students.
In English, but not necessarily about English.
Season 1, Episode 1 - The one where Basia tells us about a cooperative coming soon!
